Migrating Data to New Core Systems for a Telecommunications Operator

Over the years, O2’s product portfolio has gone through several significant transformations, its ownership structure and thus its company strategy has changed. Thanks to acquisitions, it has merged with many companies whose IS infrastructures have subsequently been integrated into the original infrastructure. O2 has inevitably come to the point where IS complexity has become a serious obstacle to competitiveness and the ability to flexibly respond to market demands. To solve the issue, in 2014 O2 launched an extensive project called Simple Online Company (SOC).

 

Profinit provided a detailed plan including a minute-by-minute schedule for the first wave of SOC project. It was responsible for the management and coordination of 60 influenced systems, prepared and performed data migration from ten outdated and changed applications to seven newly launched systems.

 

The migration consisted not only of a physical movement of the data but also of sophisticated data transformations due to a different logic of the systems, product portfolio simplifications or cancellation and creation of tens of tariffs, customer packages and other additional services.

Instalment detector for a large european bank

The majority of the profit in modern retail banking comes from loan products. Unfortunately, not all of your clients borrow money from you. Our model is built to detect all payments going from your bank to other banks and financial institutions to pay for existing loans elsewhere. The whole installment loan battlefield can be laid open in front of your eyes. This is a perfect opportunity to offer your clients a loan transfer or consolidation through your bank.

Household detector for a challenger bank

In telecommunications as well as banking, you have enough data to reconstruct family relationships between clients. Based on data concerning card payments, phone calls, and location, you can correlate people in time and space. If you add some simple demographics, you end up with a surprisingly precise model that finds a person’s spouse, parents, siblings, etc. In some countries, this sort of data mining cannot be legally employed, but in others, regulations are not so strict. So, the bank can use this knowledge to improve a person’s risk score based on her family members, or a telecommunications operator can make a better targeted marketing offer.

Interest rate optimiser for a challenger bank

Setting interest rates is a complicated problem. If you set rates too low, you are cutting your profit. If you set them too high, your clients won’t accept them or will soon move on. The competition is very stiff, especially online. Most banks use risk-based pricing, assigning each class of clients interest rates according to the probability of default. This method can be improved. By giving clients who are more price sensitive a little bonus at the expense of clients who are less price sensitive while maintaining the average interest rate for all risk classes, we can improve acceptance, reduce turnover, and boost profit while still complying with strict banking regulations.
